Hi there every one, I don't make journal entries very often, mainly because my typing is so slow (it has taken three days just to get this far) and because I rarely have anything interesting to say. But today changes that I do have interesting things to say, well one interesting thing, and here it is......[link]
WHITE CLOUD WORLDS!!!!!!! What!!!! No way is it out already, that is so cool!!!! Yes step right up the long awaited book containing 27, count them 27 fantasy and scifi artists from New Zealand squeezed tightly (a little too tightly for my liking, I mean personal space people)between it's pristine covers.
This is exciting times, designers from Weta Workshop, freelance illustrators, sculptors comic book artists and more rub shoulders in one amazing book, the likes of Greg Broadmore (hairy designer on D9 and of Dr Groadborts), BenStenbeck (of Darkhorse Comics),Jamie Beswarick (sculptor/designer of the Cave troll and much much more), and many more great artists, they even let my good self have a page or two.
This collection is the brain child of Paul Tobin, friend, artist and pushy bastard, how else do you get 27 artists organised to get their art into one publication, let alone paint a self potrait and write their own text, amazing a tribute to the man's shear bloody mindedness. Well done this Paul this is a monumental piece of work and I for one am immensely proud to be in this book.
I hear you mummuring "that is all well and good but where can I get a copy for myself", well ask no more for following is a list of online shops where it may be found and salivated over and purchased (just in time for Xmas, go on treat yourself) and remember if you do live in Australsia then it can be purchased of most bookstores, also there is a DA page dedicated to the very same title and links to the DA pages of other artists found lurking in the book. There is an interview with myself that can be found on StarshipSofa podcast (ep 106, near the end if you don't want to listen to the whole awesome show), and another interview with paul, myself and others fron the book on the White Cloud Worlds blog. So takes your pick and follow a link, wonder awaits......
